for former senator scott brown with an eight-point lead over the democratic party's generic candidate. then a 20-point lead over the democratic senatorial committee's preference. brown hasn't made any real decisions on this yet, mark. realistically with all this talk it seems like he's in this race. what are his chances? >> he still hasn't made up his mind yet. there is thinking he might decide to run for governor instead of for senate. the polls show scott brown to be in a very good position. and he would give republicans the best opportunity to pick that seat. however, when you look -- when you chat with a lot of democrats they believe the reason scott brown got elected in 2010 was a confluence of events that might not repeat themselves this year. >> nbc's mark murray in d.c. for us. thank you. >>> just ahead, the kid friendly gun campaign. gun makers are pouring millions of dollars into ads aimed at your kids. dan gross with the brady campaign and congresswoman jackie spear way in on that. >>> plus, state of emergency. protests and violence rage on in egypt despite the attempts to
. joining me dana will bank and former san francisco mayor willie brown. i want to go to mayor brown on this. it just seems to me there are other reasons to have lists of people buying guns, especially semiautomatic rifles, mayor. they have fingerprints on people out there. we don't collect people's hands. this is an absurd lie. of course there are reasons to want to know who buys certain guns. maybe we should have ballistic tests on everything so we have know who kills somebody. your thoughts. are they crazy or smart or both? >> no, i think they're absolutely crazy. i think they are desperately trying as best they can to overcome what obviously is a movement towards some form of gun control, no matter how modest. the most recent incidents involving people who obviously were out of their minds using weapons on children and otherwise has caused panic among the gunowners of america. and in particular, the man whom you had quoted just a minute ago. his reaction is exactly that, of a desperate person trying to stave off what has turned into a basically popular movement. >> you know, if someone c
